There's a river

I had been planning on posting something about the Squalls for a few weeks. Then I found out that somebody beat me to it and has a bunch of songs posted already. But they didn’t post what I think is the bands best song. I’ll go farther than that, this is one of the best songs to come out of Athens, GA ever. Top 10.

The Squalls were around for years, from 1981 to 1989. They did an EP and a single on their own Mbrella label and two albums for Jefferson Holt’s Dog Gone Records. Then they broke up.

Singer Bob Hay is now leading a folk band called The Jolly Beggars that specializes in the songs of Robert Burns. And maybe some Squalls songs.

Hi. I stumbled across this post and just wondered what that "best" song was (The link has expired.) I'm guessing from the title that it might be "Bride of Frankenstein." But anyway, thanks!

Hi Bob!

Yes, "Bride of Frankenstein" is the song.

Found this blog because of this posting - LOVED the Squalls! Genuinely talented bunch. Thank you for bringing back great memories of Athens.

But.....LOVE this blog because of its equal opportunity approach to dusting off old music - the good - bad and ugly. Geez - who knew that Eve Plumb (aka Jan Brady) had a song in her closet? yikes! Too bad they weren't thinking of a youtube moment back when they recorded it.
